Kundalini Chair Yoga

Julie Henderson

Kundalini Yoga Strathearn

I first began practising yoga when I was 17, from a book! I felt myself drawn to this wonderful, strange process that felt so right. That draw has continued and I have practised Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Iyengar Yoga with various levels of intensity throughout my life. Yoga breath-work even helping me through each of my pregnancies and labour. In 2010 I felt the need to deepen my practise and incorporate meditation into my routine and that is when I found Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and fell in love. It is everything and more that I was searching for and it has truly changed my life! And now it would be my great privilege and pleasure to share the benefits that I have discovered for myself with others.

Yoga

Anyta Lodge

Yoga Scotland

I qualified with Yoga Scotland in 2007 and I have been teaching yoga for 12 years.

My teaching style is traditionally Hatha Yoga, with a relaxed and natural feel.

With an added style of using the body in fluid movement, finding lightness through our connection with the earth.

I would always encourage my students to work within their own ability, which means my classes are suitable for everyone.

Please come along to my class and give it a try and see how you feel afterwards. I am offering a half price session for your first visit.

If you require any further information please contact me.

Om Shanti, Anyta

Yoga

Patricia Ace

I have been practicing yoga since the e​arly 1990s and qualified to teach with Yoga Scotland in 2002. Since then I have taught yoga in a variety of settings including the local community, schools and a prison.

Over the years I have been increasingly drawn to the tradition of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar, inspired by a keen interest in yoga philosophy and the therapeutic and healing applications of yoga. In February 2020 I completed my Yoga Teacher Diploma with TSYP and qualified to work as a yoga therapist in this tradition.

My classes focus on dynamic sequences of breath and movement (asana) and seated conscious breathing practices (pranayama). Use of chanting (mantra), focus (bhavana) and concentration (dharana) can also form part of the practice.

I continue to work on my own development through yoga with my mentor and other teachers in this tradition, while teaching weekly classes and offering one-to-one tuition and yoga therapy from my home in Crieff.
